The Future of Bioethics

This chapter examines the practical ethical issues that arise in long-term care settings, with a particular focus on the care of people with dementia. A summary of the ethical issues arising within day-to-day care practices are outlined, and consideration is given to how these issues are rendered more problematic by recent developments in transnational migration for the purposes of providing and receiving care. It is argued, first, that these ethical issues need to be addressed in ways that can command broad agreement across cultures and, second, that whilst contemporary approaches to identify universal values and principles ought to be part of this process, such values and principles alone will be insufficient to foster ethical practice. Instead, new processes need to be established at both the macro and micro level to enable the resolution of context-specific ethical challenges. Developing such processes requires international collaboration between academics, policy-makers and care providers.

Keywords:   long-term care, social care, dementia, human rights, ethical principles, ethics support, transnational migration
